The ­Klippel-Tre­naunay ­sydrome (KTS) is a ­rare ­anomaly char­ac­ter­ized by ­naevus, ­soft ­tissue hyper­trophy and var­i­cos­ities ­which is ­mainly ­unknown eti­ology. Asso­ciated ­deep ­venous ­system abnor­mal­ities ­have ­been ­reported ­with KTS. ­Here, a 4-­year-old-boy ­with KTS was ­reported, ­because of the asso­ciated pop­li­teal ­vein, ­common ­femoral ­vein ­with its ­deep and super­fi­cial ­branches, and ­external ­iliac ­vein agen­esis. The orig­i­nality of the pre­sented ­case is ­that we ­have ­never ­observed ­such a ­case ­before.
